When someone tells a 7-year-old to eat a mound of rice with her hands, she does. She does it with a Cheshire cat grin and in spite of her disapproving mother. That 7-year-old was me on a visit to Jaipur, India with my family, when for the first time, I was denied a spoon for my plate of food.
In this era of having Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts on every corner, I think it is safe to say many of us love our warm, caffeinated beverages. But what, if anything, can you tell about a person through their coffee of choice? Well, I'll tell you, though my research may not exactly be clinical (ok, so it’s purely anecdotal, but still).
As the frigid winter air blows and snow begins to fall, the season of summer markets comes to a conclusion. Since many fruits and vegetables are no longer in prime season and vendors would rather avoid the cold of outdoor markets, a number of summer markets--including Boston University’s farmer’s market and SOWA, a popular market located on Harrison St. in the South End--have ended. But this conclusion is not the end of the farmer’s market season: a number of winter farmer’s markets will soon be popping up. Plus one of them is close to campus. Just a 20-minute walk from West Campus.
